Lilac City

One of the awesomest things about spring is how the flowers mark the progression of the season: we start of with shy snowdrops, move on to an ubiquitous sea of yellow daffodils and raucous multicoloured tulips. get high on the smell of hyacinth and get dazed by the pink explosion of cherry blossoms and magnolias. The end of April comes with a scent of lilac and lily of the valley- the running path on Margit Island is guarded on all sides by lilac trees exploding in purple and white flowers: on warmish evenings when the air settles the smell can be quite overwhelming and adds an extra kick to the dopamine surge of the run.
